Asian longhorned beetle ALB; Anoplophora glabripennis is an exotic wood-borer that poses a severe threat to natural and urban forests in North America if it is not eradicated and becomes widespread. ALB has a wide host range that includes tree species in 12 genera with maples Acer spp. ALB is native to China and Korea, and was likely transported to the United States in wooden packing material such as pallets, crates or dunnage. Eradication efforts continue in other states and Ontario where ALB has been found. The removal of regulated items that could spread the beetle, such as logs, trees, tree trimmings, chipped wood with pieces larger than 1 inch in two dimensions, and firewood, from the quarantined area is restricted by law.
